Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Sustainability?
Ensure optimal sustainability with assessment results that are saved for each design configuration to easily compare versions. Assembly Visualization ranks the impact of your assembly’s parts to reassess the design’s sustainability. Seamless integration and automatic report generation lets you communicate your solution.
SOLIDWORKS® Sustainability provides actionable environmental results early in the design cycle by measuring the environmental impacts of individual designs across the product life cycle—including the effects of materials, manufacturing, assembly, transportation, use and disposal—as well as offering alternatives. Using industry-standard Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) criteria, the software generates feedback at a fraction of the time and cost of a typical assessment. In addition to helping you reduce production costs and develop greener products, environmental assessment can lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your products by evaluating potential transportation, usage, and disposal effects.
SOLIDWORKS Sustainability parameters and results are embedded within a SOLIDWORKS model, enabling you to share information with suppliers or customers.
GaBi Environmental Database
The GaBi environmental LCA database is a set of environmental impacts obtained through a combination of scientific experimentation and empirical results obtained in the field. Nearly all SOLIDWORKS materials and typical manufacturing processes for each material are mapped to the equivalent GaBi material and process.
